  • 1¼ lbs. ground turkey, dark meat preferred
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 cup panko crumbs, soaked in 2 tablespoons chicken broth
  • ½ cup minced onion
  • ½ cup chopped dried cranberries
  • 2 tablespoons ricotta cheese

  • 2 teaspoons Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix
  • Prepared cranberry sauce and Hidden Valley Original Ranch Salad Dressing, for serving


  1. 1. In a mixing bowl, combine the turkey, egg, panko, onion, cranberries, ricotta and Ranch seasoning until well blended. If time allows, chill the mixture for at least an hour in the refrigerator.
  2. 2. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Oil a baking sheet and set aside.
  3. 3. Wetting your hands if necessary to prevent sticking, roll the turkey mixture into 1-inch meatballs, and set on a baking sheet. Place in oven and roast until the meatballs are browned and cooked through, about 15-20 minutes (or when the internal temperature is 165°F). Let sit for 10 minutes before serving with cranberry sauce and ranch dressing, for dipping.
